the presiding officer: without objection. the senate will now observe a moment of silence for the 40th anniversary of the munich olympics massacre. [the senate is observing a moment of silence] [the senate is observing a moment of silence] [the senate is observing a moment of silence]
2:57 am
mrs. gillibrand: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new york. mrs. gillibrand: i stand here today with my colleagues to observe one minute of silence on the first day of session since the passage of the 40th anniversary of the 1972 munich olympic terrorist attack which killed 11 athletes and coaches from the israeli olympic team. prior to the extraordinary summer games in london where so many of our athletes excelled and made our country so proud, the senate passed a bipartisan resolution that i authored with senator rubio. with this resolution, which was supported by more than 30 of our colleagues, the senate called on the international olympics committee to hold a moment of silence in london to honor these 11 slain israeli olympians. it's regrettable that they chose not to. today, here in the senate, in this body, we right that wrong. the munich tragedy was an
2:58 am
outrageous attack against innocent athletes and against the unifying spirit of the olympics. observing a moment of silence at the 2012 olympic games' opening ceremony when the world attention was focused on this symbol of international cooperation and peace, it would have sent such a powerful message of unity in our fight against terrorism. on september 5, 1972, a palestinian terrorist group called black september broke into the munich olympic village, killed an israeli athlete and coach, and took nine other athletes and coaches hostage. a german police officer was killed and nine hostages were murdered during a rescue attempt. in observing this minute of silence, as in our resolution, we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1972 munich olympic terrorist attack, remembering those who lost their
2:59 am
lives and reject and repudiate terrorism. as antithetical to the olympic goal of peaceful competition. mr. durbin: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from illinois. mr. durbin: i want to thank the senator from new york and senator rubio for calling attention to this sad anniversary, the 40th anniversary of the killing of the israeli participants in the munich olympics. having just witnessed, as the senator from new york noted, the spectacular olympics that were staged in london and realizing how the olympics started as a way to transcend national differences and to create an olympic global spirit, it was especially heart breaking what happened in munich. we followed it in those early days of television. it was being reported on by some of the sports announcers who were actually at the olympics themselves, and it was hard to
3:00 am
believe as the hostages were being taken that they would all be killed before it was over. i sincerely hope that we in the world will learn a lesson from this tragedy, a lesson that violence begets violence, that we need to bring an end to this sort of terrorist activity, stand together in that olympic global spirit. my thanks to senators gillibrand and rubio for their efforts to make that part of the london olympics but to make certain that this day has not been forgotten here on the floor of the united states senate. mr. cardin: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. mr. cardin: i want to thank senator gillibrand for bringing this moment to the attention of the united states senate and the american people and thank senator rubio, senator durbin for being here. it's hard to believe it's been 40 years. it's hard to believe it's been 40 years since that tragic event in which terrorists had the attention of the world in the olympics at munich. and it's hard to believe over the last 40 years we've
3:01 am
experienced so much of the violence from extremists and terrorists, tomorrow we will commemorate the 11th anniversary of the attack on our own country, and we recognize that the only way that we can stand up to this type of extremism is to never forthe get. -- forget and dere-dedicate ourselves to do everything we can to root out extremists, to root out terrorists and to never forget the consequences of their actions. so i want thank senator gillibrand and senator rubio for the resolution that we passed in this congress, to let those who were victimized 40 years ago to know that we won't forget them and we continue to dedicate our efforts to root out this type of hatred, this type of extremism to make sure the olympic spirit, which is world's competition, is to bring peace in the world, that that spirit is alive and well in the united states senate and the united
3:02 am
states of america. and we will continue to commemorate what happened so that we don't forget and dedicate ourselves to a more peaceful world. withoo
